Charter Bouncing Email Notices

2021-11-29 12:00pm: Libraries have reported that Charter is bouncing their library email notices.  Unfortunately, patrons must contact their email provider themselves and inform them that email notices from linkcatnotices@(library domain) are NOT spam.


Some Patrons not receiving hold notification text messages-

2021-11-10 12:40pm:  The additional testing was successful.  If you have patrons who are using US Cellular and they switched their hold notices to email or some other notification, they should be able to switch back if they still prefer to get text notices.  If patrons report they are still not receiving text messages, ask the patron to contact US Cellular about not receiving text messages from 608-234-4502 and also let us know.  Thanks!

2021-11-10 10:30am:  After more work with the SMS provider and US Cellular, the latest test text message was received successfully.  We're doing some additional testing, but hopefully the problem is now fixed.

2021-09-27 8:50 am:  We've heard back from the Talkingtech vendor and they and their SMS provider confirmed the text messages are going out.  The US Cellular service for blocking robocalls said that the text messaging number we use isn't blocked for calls but that they only do blocking for robocalls and the number might be blocked by a different service.  If a patron has US Cellular and is not receiving text messages, the current suggestion is to have them contact US Cellular and ask if 608-234-4502 has been blocked. 

2021-09-24 11:00 am:  We've continued to test and, as of yesterday, US Cellular customers were still not getting their hold notification test messages.  They are receiving phone calls, just not the text messages.  Our vendor has confirmed that the text messages were processed correctly and sent.  They are contacting their SMS service provider to see if there are any indications of errors on that end.  We also reported the phone number used for the text messages to the US Cellular page for businesses to report having their phone numbers blocked as spam.  I don't know that this will help as we're having text messages blocked, not phone calls but we'll see if it makes a difference.

2021-09-14 2:00 pm:  We've tested and confirmed there is an issue with US Cellular customers not getting their hold notification text messages.  The messages are leaving the Talkingtech server but are not being delivered.  Unfortunately, unlike email, we don't get a bounce or error notification for text messages.  If you have patrons reporting they are not receiving their text messages, they should contact US Cellular about the problem.  US Cellular may be blocking our text messages thinking they are spam.

2021-08-30 4:54 pm: Two libraries have passed on reports from patrons that they did not receive hold notification text messages last week.  The Message queue in the patron record state that the messages were delivered but patrons have not received them.  ILS staff are investigating to determine the source of the problem.



the new SCLS website will be launching on Thursday, September 7. Content from the old site will still be available on the new site, with a new and improved look!
